HCMC – Dong Thap authorities have put forward a proposal for spending over VND113 billion constructing five connector roads with a total length of seven kilometers along the My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway.
The ongoing construction of the phase-one My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway, passing through An Khanh and An Phu Thuan in Chau Thanh District, Dong Thap Province, has created inconveniences for many local residents in accessing their farmland due to the absence of connector roads.
To address this issue, the Dong Thap People’s Committee has requested the Ministry of Transport and the My Thuan Project Management Board to allocate additional funds for the construction of a system of roads connecting pieces of farmland along both sides of the expressway, with an estimated cost of over VND113 billion.
The affected area on the 6.4-kilometer section in An Khanh involves 139 households, while the 4.04-kilometer section in An Phu Thuan affects 64 households.
The connector roads will include building 12 sewers and the Xeo Lo bridge, as proposed by the Dong Thap authorities.
The first-phase My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway, part of the eastern North-South Expressway project, passes through Dong Thap and Vinh Long provinces. Construction of the project began in February 2021 and is expected to be completed this year.
